Now I've got the blog here, I've closed the news page as it just seemed like a duplication. There was just this written here recently, so I'm moving it here!
10th December 2013
It's been a while since I put any updates here, and I thought with the holiday season coming up that I should put something up!
At the moment I'm working on my Christmas story. I thought hard about whether to do one or not, as I've already got a lot on my plate, but I always felt as if the Hot for the Boss books needed something more. I'll be looking at revamping the covers next year, but in the meantime I'll be releasing Christmas with the Boss in the next couple of weeks. There won't be any big buildup or cover release or anything, it's just a one off story that I'll put up when ready.
I've also got my NaNoWriMo book, "Loving The Rake" to finish editing and there's some tidy up on it. I wrote it by the seat of my pants so there are all kinds of things that aren't quite right, and I've taken it down off Smashwords for the meantime while I tidy it up for proper release. I'm thinking about making that one a freebie, just because of the way it was written. November was an insane month as I'd taken on the challenge of NaNoWriMo (writing 50,000 words in 30 days) while still finishing up Another Chance ready for release. I finished Loving The Rake on the last day of the challenge.
Next year is already booked up. Due to reader request, I've worked out a basic plot for a follow up to Another Chance, this time with Lauren's story. Initially it was around her falling in love, and getting her own happy ending, but I realised there is so much more to her story that I wanted to tell. I don't know how long it will be yet, but I'd like to cover from when her parents die, and Mark moves back in to look after her. What I do know is that we'll see her relationships with Mark, Cassie, Sophie, Patrick and Ethan.
There were also some other things that I've promised myself to do. Since I released The Sultan's Bride, I wanted to write a sequel. James, Catherine's son has his own story to be told and again I've worked out what that story will be. Soon, it will be time for the characters to write their story.
I had a lot of feedback about After The Fall and how with it being written in first person, we only get to see Natalie's perspective. What I would also like to do is to do a novella about Alex and his relationship with his father. How that came to be.
Then, there is my folder called story ideas which is growing all the time. All in all, it'll be a busy year for me in 2014!
